The goal of the conference is to bring together experts to exchange good practices, experiences and views on social security and health systems toward migrants and practical measures to combat social exclusion. The Conference aims to be a high-profile event and will dovetail with the European Migration Network Study 2014 'Migrant access to social security and healthcare: policies and practice', which will be published soon [May/June 2014].
Within the topics we would like to be raised during the Conference are those listed below:
1. What are the formal international, EU and national rules that shape entitlements to social security and healthcare for third-country nationals in EU Member States?
2. What is the value of agreements that exist between EU Member States and third countries that affect the entitlement to social security and healthcare of certain groups of immigrants?
3. What type of actions regarding combating social exclusion and promoting mutual development are taken in the country of origin of migrants and in the territory of EU Member States?
The conference is free of charge.
